Hi Folks,

Rain or shine, stop by today at the Thursday Old Town North Community Farmers and Artisans Market, Alexandria’s favorite dog friendly market!

Sara of Dream of Goodies continues to expand her offerings, bringing us Paleo Belgium waffles — Yum!! High protein, light and fluffy, and sweetened with organic apple and banana. Just warm them up in the toaster oven.  Also available are pre-baked pizza crust, sweet potato gnocchi, crackers, chocolate avocado frosted brownies, mini cakes with organic berries, banana bread, cupcakes, and assorted cookies.  All of Sara’s offerings are paleo-friendly, gluten free, low glycemic, non-GMO and delicious.

Farmer Lopez and his family continue to bring us fresh veggies and produce from the family farm in Warsaw, Virginia . Last week, he had fresh local corn, peaches, watermelons, cantaloupes, heirloom tomatoes. A true delight! For those with a palate for spice…rumor has it, he may have jicama peppers this week. Several of Old Town’s restaurants are sharing Leonel’s fresh fruits and veggies on their menus. Check out what is in Season in Virginia!

Ana’s Twist promises something new this week to go along with her signature soups, sorbets and fresh baked Empanadas: Fresh juice made with produce from our local farmers! Can’t wait to sample some. Her Ecuadorian Cassava Bread was a big hit last week.

Compost Alex returns to the market next week. Be sure to stop by to learn more about how you can help with the effort to bring a compost drop off site to Alexandria.

Taste of Eurasia sends their apologies and will join us next week.
